Ventana Wilderness Area is a vast inland wilderness that is adjacent to the coastal paradise that is
Big Sur. The wilderness contains a maze of wonderful hiking trails. Cone peak on the south end of
the wilderness is the highest mountain in the park at five thousand feet. Cone peak marks the southern
terminus for the range of the coastal redwood. The trail to the top of Cone peak is a challenge, but the
reward is some of the most beautiful coastal vistas in all of California.
